The Castlecrag Community Fair is Coming...




 Sunday 16th June, 2013 10am to 3pm
Castlecrag Shopping Village, Edinburgh Road & The Postern

Join in the fun of the fair and visit us at
SERIN CINI
Shop 4, 122 Edinburgh Road, Castlecrag 
Much of Castlecrag's architecture, unusual layout, character and preserved bushland
 is due in part to Walter Burley Griffin and his wife Marion Mahony Griffin. 
These American architects came to Australia in 1914, having won 
an international competition to design Australia's national capital, Canberra. 
The true genesis of Castlecrag was in the 1920s,
when the Griffins developed it to be a "model suburb" 
in which the houses and landscape should be in harmony with each other.

We are proud of Castlecrag. 
It stands on a beautiful peninsula jutting into Sydney's Middle Harbour.
Through its strong sense of community and unique architectural heritage, 
much of its special natural character has been retained. 

Castlecrag's conservation of its natural environment
 allows its residents to enjoy the suburb's rich diversity of fauna and flora 
and wander through hectares of healthy Australian bushland.

Take the walk through the public reserve next to 197 Edinburgh Road. 
It offers wonderful views (see photo above) of Sugarloaf Bay,
with Harold Reid Reserve in the foreground (left) 
and the suburbs of Middle Cove and Castle Cove beyond.

To the people of Castlecrag, this place is very special indeed!

The Absinthe Fairy



The Perigord is a former province of France. 
 The area is noted for its cuisine, particularly foie gras 
 and historically it is one of the most famous truffle areas of France.

We have just unpacked a selection of 
the Perigord range of glassware from La Rochere in France. 
The classic bistro glass, originally from the 1940's,
was featured with Kylie Minogue "the absinthe fairy" 
in the opening scene of Baz Luhrmann's movie "Moulin Rouge"

The Latest "buzz" on Glassware


The Napoleonic Bee range of glassware and tableware from La Rochere
  was inspired by a set of glassware 
owned by Napoleon during his reign as King of France.
 
Historically each King of France chose something as their emblem. 
Napoleon chose the bee for its industriousness 
and to signify that through unity you achieve strength. 
It was a rallying cry for his army.

The bee design is no less relevant today. 
Whether you like to feast as Kings and Queens 
or whether you simply admire the industry of our bee comrades, 
the elegance and simplicity of the Napoleonic Bee range from La Rochere is fitting. 
And, like its namesake, 
the La Rochere glassware goes the extra mile by being dishwasher safe.
